May 8 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Ben is a 14-year-old piano player who adores rock n’ roll blues piano and ragtime music. He loves the work of Scott Joplin, Ray Charles as well as Winifred Atwell. His favourite thing to do in his spare time is to take a random song and make it into a ragtime arrangement! For example he has transformed the Downton Abbey theme! Ben is also the front man in a band called KickBack who are also playing earlier in the day! If you want to hear some good music and 1920/30s piano, please come along and have a listen! This is Ben’s first Arts Festival and he’s very excited!
